Birth Defect Resource
When the tragedy of a birth defect strikes, parents often feel helpless while they and their child are at the mercy of medical staff. If your child was born with a congenital defect, you may have many questions, including:
- What does this defect entail?
- Why was my child born with this defect?
- What treatment options are available?
The most painful question you may have asked is, “Is it my fault?” In most cases there is no way you could have prevented your child’s birth defect.
Drug Companies Must Be Held Accountable
Studies show that some congenital defects may have been caused by exposure to prescription drugs, meaning that these defects could have been prevented by drug makers. Drug manufacturers have a responsibility to research all possible harmful side effects of their products and then notify the public of any potential dangers. When a pharmaceutical company fails to conduct sufficient research or to warn the public of the risks, innocent babies are injured. Pharmaceutical companies must be held responsible for this terrible injustice.
Although it is too late to prevent your baby’s condition, you can still file a suit against the company responsible to seek the compensation you deserve. Compensation can offset the cost of hospital bills and future medical treatment, as well as provide damages for your family’s physical and emotional trauma.
